Annual Giving Fund

Every single gift makes a difference

The Mayfield Family of Funds is our most important fundraising effort, representing over 8% of our operating budget to support academics, student life and top school priorities.
Tuition covers only 85% of our annual operating budget, so your annual gifts help us provide the very best Holy Child education for our students. The Mayfield Family of Funds supports the most essential and mission-driven aspects of our school’s program. Designate your gift to support a particular area of the Mayfield experience that inspires you, or let us direct your unrestricted donations to where the need is greatest. Every single gift makes a difference!  

The Mayfield Family of Funds

List of 6 items.

  • Where We Need It Most*

    We depend on Annual Fund contributions from our Mayfield community to keep our school in a position of fiscal strength and stability. Donations to the Annual Fund ensure that we cover day-to-day operating costs, as well as specific needs that change from year to year.
  • Holy Child Financial Assistance

    Your donation to the general financial aid fund directly impacts nearly one-third of our student body who benefit from the gift of a Mayfield education. Ultimately, investing in financial assistance changes a student’s life and is an investment in her present and future.
  • Sr. Barbara Mullen Mission & Ministry Fund

    The Sr. Barbara Mullen Mission & Ministry Fund supports a comprehensive Campus Ministry program which enhances the spiritual life and Catholic programming in our Holy Child tradition. All programs focus on the special needs of young women in their spiritual journey.
  • STEM

    By making a gift to our STEM program (and our Robotics program!), our students will develop critical thinking skills, collaborative efforts, and respect for the opinions and thought process of others, which will prepare them to be advanced learners in the 21st-century.
  • Athletics

    In addition to a remarkable Health and Wellness program, Mayfield supports 11 Prep League sports as well as participates in the Interscholastic Equestrian League. By making a donation in support of athletics, you support our Cub tradition and the physical wellbeing of our girls. Go Cubs!
  • Arts

    All students find their artistic voice and creativity at Mayfield, and those who wish to pursue on a more advanced level have the option to join the Conservatory. A gift to the arts will help our student artists in taking bold steps in their art, music, writing, and performances.
*The Annual Fund supports faculty and students through the School’s operating budget. In the event that designated contributions to any specific priority exceed that priority’s budgeted limit, Mayfield will direct additional funds to the area of greatest need. (You may also join the Patrons for the Arts or the Booster Club to provide non-operating support.)
